No contingency plans for aircraft failures; no training for staff to handle day-to-day normal flights variances (aka, downed aircraft, weather, airport delays).

And when I tried to use the electronic kiosk to check in, it was not functioning properly. Although it not just Spirit Airlines, but I feel as though these additional fees aren't spelled out to the consumer well enough and therefore are somewhat disingenuous in their relationships with their customers."
